Arctic Watch is a truly unique experience. The variety of wildlife I saw was amazing. The lodge is only a short walk away from the Cunningham Inlet, where dozens of beluga whales can be seen at a time playing in the shallows. Out on the tundra we saw a variety of birds, herds of muskoxen, arctic hares and foxes
The staff are all very friendly, great guides and very knowledgeable. The in-house chef prepared a fantastic variety of meals and the accommodations were very comfortable.
Time goes by quickly at Arctic Watch and a week went by before I knew it. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
